Swinky's, Park Street

When the rain falls in Bristol, it really falls. And at this time for me there seem to be endless grey skies and hurtful lies (but that is another story, and this is not that kind of blog). There are, of course, those often-occurring and appreciated moments of clarity and brightness in the form of lovely places to spend time here.

One of those places is Swinky's on Park Street. The tea shop specialises in retro sweets and delicious homemade cupcakes to accompany a selection of brews. The decor is bright and kitschy, and customers are invited to sit around beautiful mosaic tables.

I enjoyed a lovely (and much needed) detox tea and a triple chocolate cupcake to keep me out of the rain on a drizzly Friday afternoon.
